3D Modeling

The 3D Modeling concentration develops both 2D and 3D Modeling skills. The goal of a Modeler is to create believable worlds, creatures and people and is the foundation of successful 3D representations in nearly every industry! Students build their skill set in model building, rigging, digitizing and texture mapping – all taught in a hands-on learning environment. These competences form the basis of more advanced modeling techniques utilized in real world applications such as movies, commercials, games, product design/development, and more!
